Yeah. I bent the brake lever and scuffed up the muffler. Just my pride was hurt.

I didn't even hear any loud swearing, just some mumbled stuff.

I am trying to figure out what happened. Did you get hung-up on a rock and fall off backwards?

Did you just pick a bad line through that spot? I've done it a bunch of times on a MTB with similar results, but never on a motorcycle.

I do like those super/hypermoto bikes, though.

I think he may have stalled and started rolling backward.

I guess his "little bit steeper" which doesn't come across at all on video was a bit more than the tires could handle. Looks like he's just riding down a rocky trail and then suddenly goes backwards and falls off.
